OLE Object - not rendering correctly

Good morning,

We are finding an issue with our reports where a report that contains an OLE object is not rendering properly.

We have several classes/data access/service that generate the report document(s). Every document that does NOT contain an OLE object is rendering correctly.

Our code is proprietary and thus cannot necessarily be shared but may be able to provide snippets as requested.

Again, to reiterate, it is ONLY documents that contain an OLE object which do not render properly. We are wondering if anyone has had an issue and what resolution was used to fix the issue.

If anyone can share code or point to a place that shows samples, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

    What type of OLE object is it and what do you mean when you say "not rendering properly"?

      Hi Dell,

      Thank you for the rapid response.

      I believe it was a WORD doc that was originally cut and pasted in. If I right click and select Convert, my 2 options are Bitmap Image or Picture (Device Independent Bitmap).

      Let me further clarify...the PDF is rendered but the document is blank. If I preview through Crystal, it renders fine. My initial diagnosis is that we are not handling the way OLE objects are rendered in code but that is just my hypothesis at the moment as all other text renders fine.

      Thank you,
